PTA's ASN actually did get disconnected for several hours by PCCW
(which was leaking the youtube prefixes that PTA announced, and which
shut off all of PTA's ASN rather than just filtering out the bogus

Though, I am not too convinced that wasnt simply laziness at PCCW
rather than a desire to punish PTA

Nobody's blackholed abovenet yet that I know of.  And if they did do
that, they'd feel the effects real soon.
